This is great! Really helpful research. This clears up a lot of stuff for future articles I am working on. Consider it canon. Personally I would love if you went into more depth on it. If not I will add Everything you added into my GW Naval article. Questions: -does Beatty die or is he taken prisoner? I had imagined him being the officer that hunts down all of the US commerce raiders in the Atlantic and then is a part of Churchills attempt to change Royal Navy culture to be less risk adverse in the inter-war period. I would like to know what are your plans for him after the Battle. I am fine with any of your three choices for the British commander. -I am to take it the Hood that was never completed was the OTL HMS Hood. Other than that I agree on the British battlecruisers you have selected, their classes and names. -I agree the battlecruisers shouldn't be states. However I think the pre-Dreadnoughts should be named after states. -Also bguy and I have the CS having 4 BC's at the start of the war. I haven't decided yet if they were built in the CSA or Britain. I assume CSA politics would tend to have them built domestically. Thoughts? 2 destroyed, 1 damage and one getting away un-harmed. I was thinking CSS Louisville for the fourth. I just had a little free time so I am finishing two Navy articles. I will definitely have an article of the Great War naval war from the arms race until the end of 1914 within a week.
